Thomas Gibson

Catfished

Hey Stranger, Check Out My Sexy Hot Tub Video

Brace yourselves, this might be the most hilariously embarrassing video we've ever seen -- sent by "Criminal Minds" star Thomas Gibson to a random stranger on the Internet ... after he got catfished hook, line, and sinker.

Here's the full story: a woman contacted Gibson on Twitter roughly two years ago, using a photo of a scantily clad woman, and told Gibson she was a huge fan. Gibson took the bait.

The woman -- who refused to tell us her age or name -- is from North Dakota. She says she carried on a 2-year relationship with Gibson (who's married) exchanging multiple explicit photos and video with him, using images she stole from various pornographic websites (including LoveGisele.com).

The result ... Gibson was smitten. Seriously, you have to watch the video, which he shot around Christmas last year in Utah. It's like the hot tub scene from "Austin Powers."

The woman says she actually developed feelings for Gibson too, and everything was going well until a few months ago, when she got a letter from Gibson's lawyers demanding she cut off contact ... because Gibson had discovered her pics were fake.

Shocker ... she says she hasn't heard from Gibson since. Too bad because the hot tub looked fantastic.

I get the feeling Thomas drinks a little more than he should but besides that, I don't think that video meets the criteria for "catfishing." He didn't speak of any intimacy, he didn't express love, didn't say he couldn't live without her, or they'd be together, or do any of those standard things that define a catfish romance. Thomas got drunk and sent a rather bland video to someone. He could have sent that video to a teenager and not gotten in trouble. Not catfishing.

People wonder WHY this stuff happens? Besides the fact that Gibson is married and shouldn't be doing it IN THE FIRST PLACE, sites like TMZ give these women an outlet to basically get their 15 of fame. The men get shamed, but the women who carry on these relationships get paydays and media attention. Might be his fault for buying into it and being married, but what if he were single? This lady lied to him and then when she got caught started sharing the story with the media!

So he mentions someone named Agatha in this video. Says that when he was doing this with his phone the other day, Agatha told him it was risky. Agatha - is his 9 year old daughter. Why would she think it was risky? Did she know who he was sending this too?! weird....
